Shutouts lead Redlegs to Ceraland championship

The Redlegs 12U Baseball Club participated in the Ceraland Fall League Championship tourney this past Saturday. The Redlegs finished as regular season champions with a 6-0 record.

Game 1 - Behind a complete game shutout by Joel Norman (Milan), the Redlegs defeated the Jefferson County Owls 5-0 in semi-final action. Norman pitched six innings, allowing only two singles (no runner reached third base), and struck out a career high 12 batters in earning the victory. Cody Wilson (North Vernon) doubled and scored a run, and Noah Rutan (Columbus) doubled, drove in a run, and scored a run to pace the offense.

Game 2 - Due to a forfeit by the Indiana Blazers, the Hope Bandits advanced to the championship against the Redlegs. The Redlegs wasted no time getting on the board as they scored four times in the first, highlighted by Devon Rodger’s suicide squeeze bunt. The Redlegs scored six more in the second, as Rutan launched a 3-run homer and Aaron Greiwe (South Ripley) added a two-RBI single. A solo home run by Rutan in the fourth put the finishing touch on a 11-0 victory.

Rutan pitched three innings to earn the win on the mound, while Tyler Walterman (North Decatur) and Peyton Owens (South Ripley) added scoreless relief work. Rutan ended the day 3-for-3, two homers, and 4 RBI; Greiwe was 2-for-2, two stolen bases, and two RBI; Wilson added a 2-for-3 game with a double, RBI, stolen base, and two runs scored.

The Redlegs finish fall play with a perfect 8-0 record and look forward to the 2014 season.
